Juncal is in the central Andes of Chile, lying very close to the border with Argentina. it is often quoted as being over 6000m high, but would appear from the 1:50,000 Chilean survey to be just under 6000m. The normal ascent route for climbing Juncal is from near the ski resort of Portillo to the north.
